I'm planning on one. First I'd get an old laptop, at minimum with hd, active tft screen, ethernet, and usb. I like old Toshibas, so maybe a Satellite or a Libretto..
I had nothing to do today, so I planned it quite thoroughly..
I've used LinuxFromScratch before, it'll make a good base when optimized, stripped and modded. Pic viewer would be Zgv on svgalib. Mplayer, tinyX and Opera would also be there. The sys would be on one ext2 readonly partition, the rest of the space would be for pic's, mp3's and movies, maybe on fat32 'cause permissions wouldn't be needed.
Since Linux still scares many, I'd do a kind textmode UI, with lots of help msgs.
To the questions:
And if there are many, main.(c/h) or some other?
Then I'm going to take away the keyboard, but leave the touchpad for control. How do I map mouse events (left, right, wheel up, wheel down) to keys in console?
Does Linux handle ext2/3 any faster than fat32?
And if you have any other suggestions, I'd like to hear 'em..
